Though it is said that T20 is a game for the batsmen, there are bowlers who can change the scenario at any time. The UAE pitches will be a lot like the Indian pitches, which are expected to favor the spinners. Though it will be silly to rule out the speedsters who can take the tide of the match into their own hands.
T20 is the shortest format of cricket, and cricket fans love those towering sixes and high-scoring enthralling matches. The cricket fanatics who play daily fantasy games and other online fantasy cricket games battle it out of the field in what is also a pretty fierce competition.
In this article, we discuss 5 bowlers who can change the course of the match at any time.
The spinning wizard from Afghanistan is a bowler who keeps the wickets tumbling and has a great economic rate. Wherever he plays, be it for the national side, IPL, or Big Bash, he is a batsmen’s nightmare and even the greatest batsmen in world cricket find it hard to hit him for runs. Rashid will be rightfully supported by Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb ur Rehman, the latter being a spinner. Nabi will also play a vital role in the Afghan bowling lineup, as he has bags of experience with him.
The South African spinner and current number one T20I bowler, Shamsi will be leading the Proteas bowling attack. Shamsi has this uncanny nature of striking with a few loose deliveries, and he will be looking for apt support from other experienced bowlers like Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi. Besides them, bowlers like Chris Morris and Andre Nortje will have key roles in South Africa’s road to glory.
The Aussie pacer will run down fiercely in search of those early wickets. He is a dream to have for any captain and has experience with him. He is no new to this format or competition and will play a significant role if Australia has to win their maiden T20 World Cup. The Australians will bank on Starc as well as his other pace counterparts like Josh Hazlewood and Kane Richardson to fire all cylinders. The spinning duo of Aston Agar and Adam Zampa is something that will be handy for batsmen as they are in great form currently and Zampa has experience of playing on these sticky, slow, and turning pitches.
Like Starc, the Mumbai Indians’ left-arm bowler, Trent Boult can be Kane Williamson’s main bet towards success. Boult not only picks up wickets but is good at the end of the innings. Besides him, Lockie Ferguson and spinner Ish Sodhi will be crucial and decide how far the Kiwis progress.
Indian bowling attack and Bumrah have been synonymous for a decent time. The ‘Yorker king’ will come to all guns blazing and his pace variations can be tricky for batsmen to gauge. Bumrah being a wicket-taking and economical bowler can play a game-changing role on any given day. Besides captain Kohli depends on Bumrah at the start and end of the innings. It is to be seen which bowler from the above-mentioned article creates the biggest downside for batsmen, as all of them carry vigor, experience, and attitude to take the pressure and deliver for their respective nations.
